Here I am once again joining in Melody's Tuesday Treasures, this week I am sharing something I have treasured since I was a small child, it is my Grandma's timber chest, my Pop gave it to her when they were courting back in 1931. I grew up in Rockhampton and my Dad's parents lived in Mt. Morgan, we visited every other Sunday and I have LOTS of great memories of those times. As a small child I always loved Grandma's chest and HOPED one day it would be mine. I told my Mother about this when I was pregnant with my youngest (Rebecca is now 18-1/2). Mum said to me your Grandmother is a very practical woman just say to her you have always loved it and hoped one day it would be yours, we were up in Rocky when I was pregnant with Rebecca and I phoned Grandma and had a talk and she said "you can have it now Kaylee, however there is one condition you have to take with with everything in it", WOW I was like a small child at Christmas, so excited with all the treasures I found inside, my Grandma did lots of crochet and Tatting (my Grandma taught my sister and I to crochet as small children), inside were some tatting shuttles, lots of wool which I used to make a patch crochet blanket, a leather pouch with some small hooks which I think were used to do up ladies lace shoes early last century and many other exciting treasures. I had hoped to keep the chest original however the material on the top was very worn and holes were starting to appear so I decided to put a new top on it and when I was removing the braid from the original top (I thought), we found another fabric so I guess Grandma had already put a new top on it. I keep the chest in my craft room and have it full of my craft goodies. In the second photo you can see the bear fur I have cut out ready to assemble.
